A newly released Vita update is presenting some users from accessing the PlayStation Store on Sony’s spunky little handheld. It’s also draining some people’s batteries. Good times all around.
Vita users first started reporting problems with update 3.57 earlier this week on forums like Reddit and NeoGAF, and I confirmed them for myself last night: when I tried to connect to the PlayStation Store, the screen remained on “Please wait...” for upwards of ten minutes before ultimately giving up. This morning, my battery appeared to be draining faster than it ever has.
Here’s hoping this will be fixed soon. We’ve reached out to Sony but they haven’t commented yet.
My Vita has been having some problems connecting to the PSN Store (and some battery drainage- though that might have more to do with the fact that this thing is years old, has constantly been used, and is probably past its 500 charge cycles already), but nothing as bad as what the article and the comments on Reddit and NeoGAF are describing.
But anyway... don't update your PS Vita just yet.
I would say I hope that Sony releases a new update to fix this issue some time soon, but bwahahahahahahahahaha, Sony caring about the Vita.
